Our Story

Wiphan Care Ministries began with a young widow named Kunda. After losing her own husband, Kunda found herself and her children living among other widows and orphaned children in Ndola, Zambia. Out of her own loss and compassion for others, Kunda started a small school for orphans. She contacted Kevin Jones, a dear friend of her late husband, who organized American support for Wiphan.  At the same time, Kunda was sharing her resources with other widows struggling to support themselves and their children. Her original vision of teaching widowed ladies to bake pies to sell for income has blossomed into three skills training programs.

 

What began with one small school for orphans has grown to three schools annually providing education for 900 orphans and vulnerable children and training for more than 200 women in computer keyboarding, hospitality and jewelry crafting.

 From Kunda's loss came joy and purpose.


"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress..."
